Eat you food and stop worrying. ...Read more

Often the physical pain becomes a coping mechanism to deal (or rather not to deal) with overwhelming emotional difficulties. Hotline: http://ow. Ly/x7AVK ...Read more

Just like learning to walk, practice makes perfect, so work with him but don't stress over it. ...Read more
